Bonita Springs, FL
While Grandpa and Judith went to Nashville and Chicago respectively, they graciously allowed us to use their beautiful condo.
Because of the reliable wifi access, we spent most the week writing (Taylor) and programming (Brandon), though we walked through the bamboo trails at a local state park, went out to a vegan brunch place, boated to the condo's private beach (and saw dolphins while tanning on the provided chairs), lounged at the pool multiple times, made use of the on-the-premises gym and enjoyed the ritual of sitting out on the patio, drinking our morning cup of coffee (or two).
The two nights we spent with Grandpa and Judith were also a great time. Judith made a delicious vegan burger/ portobello mushroom dinner we've since tried to replicate ourselves, we drank wine while overlooking the ocean at the Bay Club, I went to a kick-butt, much-needed yoga class, we watched the Oscars -- they both almost made it until the end, a feat for novices -- and just talked about life.
It was so fun to see you both again, and thank you, thank you, for inviting us to stay at your lovely home.
